The proposed lossless compression approach combines real-time system design principles, traditional optimum lossless encoding, the latest research in… more
Abstract:Epidemiological estimates indicate that at least 20 percent of the forces deployed in or returning from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars suffer PTSD or major depression. The number of veterans receiving mental health care has increased from 900,000 to 1.2 million in the past four years. Last year over… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed program is to develop a highly miniaturized wireless pressure sensor for integration with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) earplugs in a practical and cost effective manner.

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Future Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) missions will require significant capabilities in onboard and ground-based automation and autonomy, including event detection, planning and scheduling (P & S), and task execution. Onboard P & S is particularly challenging, because of… more
Abstract:Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a key trace species that is of great interest to atmospheric scientists in NASA and other research institutions. In this SBIR project, we proposed to build an airborne atmospheric formaldehyde (HCHO) profiler implementing a Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) technique. This… more
Abstract:Aircraft wake vortices is especially hazardous during the landing and taking-off phases of flight. It is essential to obtain an accurate atmospheric temperature profile in the lower troposphere for a better prediction and understanding of aircraft wake vortex. In this NASA SBIR project, we propose… more
Abstract:The development of a standoff sensor that can measure 3D components of wind velocity in the downwash of a rotorcraft operating near solid surfaces would enable a better understanding of this complicated flowfield and provide data to validate computational models.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
